Hey UniQ,

I'm sure Skip can answer this, but as I understand it, these new movies aren't 'Prelinger movies' - it was mentioned that these are from:

'another collection which Rick arranged to be digitized'

I do agree, though, that the MP4 version of DOA seems to be broken - something weird happens about 8 minutes into it, in the version I downloaded - a break in the picture and then some slow-motion effects with the sound going out of sync? Unless this is artful cinematography I'm missing.

Regards,
s!

I uploaded Reefer Madness and Hemp for Victory from DVD. The automated process of creating mp4 and vcd that runs on the Archive's servers seems to have gone awry for them.

I hope more people will upload public domain material that has been issued on DVD.

Thanks for the very descriptive report of the MPEG-4 problems. This will help us diagnose what's going on.

Has anybody had a chance to look at the MPEG-2 file? I'm interested to know if it plays okay and if anybody has made a DVD with the file yet.

I haven't tried the MPEG-2, but I get a similar result with the MPEG-1 in both WinDVD and Virtual Dub in XP. There's a jump cut at 7:53 and then the sluggish video starts and soon after the audio is about 30 seconds ahead of the video.

The MPEG2 of Reefer Madness is fine, the MPEG4 isn't.

I'm using QT 6.0.3 on Macintosth System Software 9.2.2

OK both the MPEG1 and 4 of DOA are bad. The 1 less so.

PS. I haven't tried the MPEG2 because it's HUGE.

Yes, this film (D.O.A.) and future ones are from another collection. These files will temporarily be located in Open Source until a new section is created.

Thanks for the feedback regarding the broken MPEG-4 file. Was this for both the modem and DSL streaming and downloaded files?

Which player are you using to view the files?

I'll pass this onto the appropriate person.

I'm using Quicktime 6.4 on Windows 2000, and it was the downloadable MPEG 4 version that was a problem for me - that's the only format I've tried thus far.
